I am totally surprised by this user-friendly feature of Windows, where I save a web page (in Firefox), resulting in an HTML file and a directory for the CSS, JS, PNG and other material, and where that file and directory are effectively glued together.
If I copy the file to another location, the directory is copied too.
If I delete the directory, the file is also deleted.
If I try to rename the directory, a warning comes up saying: If you rename this folder, the associated HTML file might not work properly. This is of course different from the association between file extensions and applications.
If I am interested in the HTML file only, there is no way to either copy just that file, or to delete just the directory. Of course I can start over and download the page with "html only", but my point is:
What is going on? How does this work? Is this Folder Redirection?
How can I make or break the association two file system objects like a file and a directory?
I tried this also with the DOS Command Prompt, Altap Salamander, and with Linux. The association seems to be a Windows Explorer feature. But I really prefer to work with the File Explorer (while in Windows).
